Fat Tuesday In The Gaslamp

I'm gonna be honest and say the only time I ever went downtown for Mardi Gras (and ShamRock, and any other downtown festival) was when I had VIP passes that had access to a private party area and free drinks. I'm 31 now and I'll leave the debauchery to the rookies who think screaming "show your tits" is hilarious. Me, not so much. But, since people are trying to find info (as indicated by my sitemeter), here's all the info about Fat Tuesday in the Gaslamp:

Official Site Here

Gates Open at 6 pm
Rain Or Shine
3 entry gates: 5th & Broadway, 4th & Market, and 6th & K
Advance Tickets were $15, probably $20 at the gate
Two parades, 7:30 & 10 pm
Roving Bands in the parade, Stages at House of Blues, Dick's and Rock Bottom
also...supposedly NO CAMERAS WILL BE ALLOWED...weird.

***If you're going to Pinback at the House of Blues, take a cab or trolley. Street closures and parking are gonna suck.

Laissez les bons temps rouler...
